A key mainstream Syrian rebel commander condemned on Wednesday a US decision to blacklist the jihadist Al-Nusra Front as a "terrorist organization."

"We reject this decision," Colonel Abdel Jabbar al-Okaidi, head of the Free Syrian Army in the battleground northern province of Aleppo, told Agence France Presse.

"Al-Nusra Front has never done anything illegal or worth condemning against a foreign country. They are fighting side by side with us.

"The United States should blacklist as terrorists the leaders of the regime" of President Bashar Assad, Okaidi said. "They are massacring civilians, and destroying mosques and houses."

The salafi and wahhabi killers in Syria who serve American and Israeli interests for their Saudi and Qatari masters will meet the same fate as the salafi killers who helped drive the Russians out of Afghanistan. This commander will soon sing a different tune or he will be sidelined in one way or another. Meanwhile the men of the House of Saud and Emir of Kuwait will glut themselves caviar as they plan their next extended stay in some star luxury hotel.Truth>
